stimulus plan. we are asking for you to give us your view. welcome to this addition of the washington journal. we want to know from you what is your view of the economic recovery the president talked about four years ago. here are the numbers -- you can also reach out to us via social media. the address is on the screen. for twitter, the address is cspanwj. pan.book.com/c-spas or you can e-mail journal@c- span.org. we begin by talking about the speech that the president made four years ago in elkhart, indiana. it is part of the nbc news elkhart project. we will talk more about that. we want to talk to you about your view of the economic recovery. our first call comes from randy and new hampshire on our line for independence. caller: how are you guys this morning? things are going downhill fast. we are in this huge crisis. the recession is going on and on. we are lucky that we are not in worse shape in a severe depression. the banks keep doing business. things need to change fast. host: what kind of work do you do? caller: i am a diesel mechanic by trade but i now go to school. i go to
it seems to me, and maybe i will direct us to the navy, because the numbers matter in the navy. obviously it is a lot of great people. we have half as many chips as we had 30 years ago. some people say that that is okay because they are technologically advanced we don't need as many. which i am sure that that is true in part. but it does seem like numbers matter to a certain extent. that is the thrust of my question. we are asking you, the navy, to do a lot of things. to go and chase the pirates off the coast of samarra. we are asking you to send humanitarian aid from the caribbean and citizen destroyers and we will need to keep an eye on china as well. it seems like the world has not gotten safer. the question to the navy and the other services, three simple questions. how do you decide the priorities that you are asked by the combatant commanders. these different missions. how do you make that decision in terms i priority when you only have limited access? also, are there areas of the world where cousins will be decreased because of this? and also, most importantly, what impact does thi
of us will get 100% of what we want. democrats, they've got to, you know, make some tough choices too. democrats like me, we've said we're prepared to make some tough cuts and reforms, including the programs like medicare. but if we're willing to compromise, then republicans in the house have to compromise as well. that's what democracy's about. that's what this country needs right now. so -- [applause] let me just make one last point, by the way, for those who are following this. lately some people have been saying, well, maybe we'll just give the president some flexibility. he can make the cuts the way he wants them, and that way it won't be as damaging. you know, the problem is when you're cutting $85 billion in seven months, which represents over a 10% cut in the defense budget in seven months, there's no smart way to do that. there's no smart way to do that. you don't want to have to choose between -- let's see, do i close funding for the disabled kid or the poor kid? do i close this navy ship yard or some other one? when you're doing things in a way that's not smart, you can't g

, andoirk connel oh, connel are joining us thank you. we know what the democrats want. they want more responding and higher taxes anyway they can get it. the question is what the republicans are going to do about it. so far they have been snuckerred by the guys, what do you think that the republicans will do? >> i think they should tell them, you got what you wanted. what are you going to do? we knew and said you will get about 40 billion attract dollars by raising taxes on upper income, rich, whatever you want to call them. we still have a deficit over $1 trillion, they said they would run on this like fdr, and andrew jackson, what times are bad, run against rich and bankers, if i was the republicans i would go on the offense say, last we're we brought in 1.2 trillion in income taxes, we still have deficits we could double income tax rates on every american and still run a deficit we have to do something with spending. >> i agree, but the question is how do you go on the defense? you don't go on offensive by immediately saying no, president has successfully painted them in a corner,

been an important opportunity for us to really put some considered thought into the proposal. what you have in front of you is better than airplane reading. there are some suggestions in this energy 2020 document that people will look at and they will argue and they will say -- that is one person's view. that is true, that is true. but while we are trying to do is not give you a legislative package starting with initiatives that we are going to kind of clicked off as we move forward. this is really designed to be a discussion blueprint. we want to try to change the conversation. one of the reasons we have to think about changing the conversation is because the energy paradigm has really shifted. think about where we were one decade ago. it was all about scarcity, shortages, and how much dependent we were on foreign sources for our oil. fast forward to where we are today. those once thought of import terminals are looking to the export terminals. we have made considerable gains in terms of our own energy independence, to the point where it is no longer just a slogan that we are talking
. that's what we found. the cost was close to 30 billion u.s. dollars. how we organize, well, we have something similar that you have. we have the national emergency office under the internal affair minister and they have offices in the different counties, in the different places in chile this emergency office request aid directly to the joint chief of staff and joint chief of staff to the army, navy or air force and then we move the pieces to put the aid where they need it. the scenario, the beginning when we face this was the same thing we are talking about in this seminar. the necessity was access because everything was, the delivery was absolutely hampered because of the roads so we have to clean it. water, food, electricity and communications. another need at that time to do that is field hospital generators, housing, sat coms, purifying water systems and mobile bridges. so the force was at the beginning just to distribute the aid and at the end start doing law enforcement when the government declared catastrophe and the president gave us the authority to do that. so we move
spring. for those of us in uniform, we are very much appreciated so we can avoid the use of force but we remain ready to do so if necessary. you have moved diplomacy into the 21st-century. your recognize there are limits to hard power. you use both hard power and soft power. you utilize social media and town halls. you have been one of the staunchest supporters of the military more than any secretary of state in my career. i expect you will slow down a bit. maybe you can add a tony award for your grammy award. would you join me? >> hillary clinton will be receiving an award. secretary hillary clinton, distinguished herself by superior service while serving as a secretary of state from 21, january 2009 to 1 february, 2013. she has provided outstanding support of all operational efforts of the joint military forces rolled wide, executing her smart power strategy of combining military strength with capacity and global economics, aid, and technology. she enhanced the role of diplomatic and defense initiatives in the international arena. capitalizing on this effort, it she instituted a diplom
around the challenge, what organizations around the world are doing under agreement with us for us, in order to preserve the national interests -- security interests of the united states and protect an attack from happening? >> a couple of points that are important. one is that nsa operates under specific authorizations and regulations that are externally approved. the governance comes from across all three branches of government of course rooted in the constitution. secondly we are set up and governed specifically, but our activities you know my office obviously comes in saying let's keep the rules aligned with the technology. aligned with the operations right making sure that's all working together. then there's constant overtight. so make sure that not only while we're doing it but after we've done it to make sure people understand and then do that feedback loop right to make sure we're constantly learning and adjusting. >> how do you -- let's take from the standpoint of just the sheer amount of e-mails, texts. all -- you know facebook, twitter. all of those are ricocheting all
have come back to the market. can you tell us a little bit more about the structural economic reforms. particularly repairing the banking system, which i feel is the exemption of growth. >> yes, two years ago when the administration was elected, it actually lasted 250,000 jobs for the two years prior to that. reputation is in shreds around the world. our banks are dysfunctional. there is a complete sense of hopelessness and despair and disillusionment. now, gordon was elected with a very keen mind. we have a strategy and a plan that works. the banks are being recapitalize and restructured and have been back in the market as this program began in 2013. there are double-digit figures and our people have had to take really serious challenges. his government made really serious decisions or if it is an example of the government works and understands the patience of people, putting up with these changes in the greater picture of things. now, we expect to do better. but we cannot do without the collaboration of the committee of the colleagues in order to do that in 2013, and example of the

spending cuts, cuts he fears will wreck the u.s. economic recovery. basically he wants lawmakers to kick the can down the road one more time. let's go to our white house correspondent dan lothian. dan is joining us. dan, the president made a little bit of a surprise appearance over in the white house briefing room. >> reporter: that's right. very surprising because the president in the past has criticized these short-term deals saying that this is not what the american people sent their elected officials to washington to do. you have this march 1st deadline quickly approaching. while congress is trying to work on a bigger budget, 1 pine point $2 trillion package, the president says they need more time in order to continue tipping away at the problem. the big concern is that everyone believes that the economy is moving in the right direction. the president is pointing to auto sales, the housing, to manufacturing. and so there's this worry that if this see quester happens, if these deep cuts happen then it could be a major set back for the u.s. economy. the president is saying the threat a
and is being treated at a local hospital. martha: elizabeth tran has been covering this and joins us from midland city, alabama. what a huge relief for this community. tell me what you are hearing about how they pulled off this raid. >> reporter: we just spoke with the local sheriff here and he told us it's still have much an. >> crime scene and ongoing investigation though details are being released. we know from federal official they were able to see inside of that bunker which is how they had knowledge jimmy lee dykes had a gun. fbi officials did confirm via e-mail that he thinks dykes was killed by law enforcement. but the fbi is processing the scene and they will release details about the shooting of dykes very soon. he says it's very important that the agency keeps certain tactics private. the feds need to protect their resources. a loud boom was heard on the scene when police stormed the bunker. they felt he was in imminent danger. last night they continued to sweep the property to check for buried bombs while the neighborhood behind me does in fact remain evacuated. martha: that l
tracking numbers on guns. but finally city mayors are trying to use their financial might to help citizens and police officers help keep them safe. the national conference of democratic mayors is launching an initiative to grade gun manufacturers. the grades will be based on things like gun company's public statements on safety regulations and their lobbying expenditures and then cities can use the grades to choose from whom they actually guy their police guns. it may sound a little bit familiar, and that's because it's the same strategy that the nra has used for years in grading congress on how gun friendly they are. one of the cities which has taken the lead on this initiative is minneapolis. today's it's mayor said . . . >> jennifer: this is just the latest move in a series of successful measures that minneapolis has taken to curb gun violence so from 2003 to 2006, minneapolis was rocked by a crime wave that killed 80 people under the age of 25 making homicide the leading cause of death for minneapolis's young people. the city has been stuck with the un

will come back to washington come a sit down with us and hopefully we can get some sort of compromise that would stop sequestration from taking place. with that, i would like to turn it over to chairman wittman who will talk to about the dangers of sequestration. >> thanks. thanks for your eloquent laying out of the issue that is before us. just as you see here, a couple of weeks ago, we asked the chief of naval operations and the common aunt of marine corps, if this was the picture of things to come. five aircraft carriers and ports, our large portion of the naval presence there, not a c. sailors at the docs. if that was the scope of things to come. their answer to us was yes. if the sequestration went into effect, aircraft carriers not being deployed, new ones not being built, current ones not being refueled. that is significant. that cuts right to the issue of readiness. we heard from all of the service agencies the issue of readiness. termedrned that as a -- it as a readiness crisis. they need to assure that we can be victorious in whatever situation that we face. that is deeply c

and equipping that we did of nonlethal assistance to the nonviolent opposition allowed us -- has allowed us over the last year to really broaden the u.s. knowledge of what's going on in syria, who the key players are. and i think if you end up, if you're getting close to a circumstance where there might be either rationalized or let's call it a highly decentralized result to the conflict, then you really want to know 100 people. you don't want to be dependent on just walking a white horse down main street at damascus and hoping that some leader jumps on and we go. so this is the kind of sort of ground, foundation building that you have to undertake and that we've done. >> could you tell us something a little more specific about how you're actually doing that? do you know 100 people in aleppo? you've got a team of 200. are you able to get people on the ground, work with others? >> sirree is a really good challenge, because you have to work out of a third country, which has its own for distinct feelings about what's going on inside of syria and what it might mean to them. so we're working -- up un
